Fake ‘Big Tech Critic’ Elizabeth Warren Calls for More Tech Censorship #2020Warren #Bigtech 7/1/19

Democrat presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has positioned herself as a critic of Silicon Valley and even criticized tech censorship in the recent past — but now she’s reversed her stance, calling for more policing of lawful speech by the unaccountable Masters of the Universe in Silicon Valley.

Warren recently called on big tech to crack down on speech she disagrees with, after black Twitter user Ali Alexander questioned whether Kamala Harris, a second-generation Jamaican-Indian, could fully lay claim to the American black identity.

Warren today took to Twitter called the insinuation “racist and ugly” and reminded tech companies that they could “stop these vile lies dead in their tracks.”

Instead of simply challenging or denouncing the claim in an open marketplace of ideas, Warren went further — she wants tech companies to exercise greater control over that marketplace, so that rogue ideas can never spread in the first place.

In other words, Warren doesn’t really oppose corporate censorship. Like many of her Democrat colleagues, she simply wants the right kind of corporate censorship.
